Melbourne Cup Runner Share Sold

Well credentialled import attracts interest

A 25 percent share in Caulfield and Melbourne Cups prospect Mustajeer has been sold to Richard Pegum for A$320,000 through the Inglis Digital Online Sale platform.

This is the equivalent at current rates of exchange of R3 266 046 for the 25% share.

The Sporting Post reported recently on SA owner Braam van Huyssteen’s earlier acquisition of a share in the smart son of Medicean.

Offered by Gaelic Bloodstock, Mustajeer – a last-start winner of the prestigious Ebor Handicap at York – is currently rated A$13 with TAB Fixed Odds for the Caulfield Cup and A$18 for the Melbourne Cup.

How we reported on the sale

The Kris Lees-trained stayer joins a number of high profile sales through the Inglis online platform in recent months including Manaya for A$400,00 and Set Goals for A$321,000.

Pegum said the opportunity to buy into a world-class stayer which is guaranteed a Caulfield Cup start in 10 days’ time was too good to refuse.

“To purchase an in-form horse for a big race this close to the race, it’s very exciting,’’ Pegum said.

“I’ve been able to buy many horses before but this is one of the most well credentialled imports I’ve ever bought.’’
